Shotcut now available!

Shotcut is a new application from the lead developer of MLT. It will eventually become a full video editor, but currently it is just a media player. The emphasis of the work thus far has been to develop a solid foundation - both code and project - upon which to build and iterate. To learn more, head on over to its website.

version 0.8.0 released

The minor version is increased due to the addition of time properties! The soname version increased in the process because some mlt_property functions changed; however, very few if any apps actually directly use mlt_property preferring to use mlt_properties instead. In addition:
  • improve seek speed on AVCHD when using FFmpeg v0.9.1+ (sorry, not Libav!)
  • composite and dissolve speed improvements on x86-64
  • improve performance of caching in image producers
  • add device enumeration to decklink producer and consumer

announcing Flowblade Movie Editor

Flowblade icon
Janne Liljeblad recently announced the availability of Flowblade - a new video editor using MLT that he has quietly been working on since 2009!

It is written in Python and GTK+ and is released under the GPLv3 license. Flowblade employs a "film style" or "insert editing" paradigm, maybe best known from Avid products. Therefore, its UI and workflow is quite a bit different than OpenShot.

You can see a screencast video of it in action on Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/40929683
